Manitoba Agriculture and Resource Development advises that due to dry conditions in parts of the province over the past few years, livestock producers will temporarily be allowed to cut hay on Crown lands not normally designated for agricultural use.
Under certain circumstances, non-agricultural Crown lands can be made available for agricultural use.
The Agricultural Crown Lands Leasing program will administer the use of available land and provide necessary permits.
This year, the department has proactively posted a list of lands available on the website that will be allocated by draw on June 11 including unallocated ACL forage lands.
After further review, additional land has been made available.
This additional list is now posted with an allocation draw date of June 21.
The available lands can be found at www.manitoba.ca/agriculture/land-management/crown-land/.
For more information, contact the Agricultural Crown Lands Leasing program at 204-867-6550 or a local Agricultural Crown Lands District Office.
